What options do you pass to configure when building, and what error occurs?

For creating a 64 bit windows installer I use the following configure

./configure --enable-devel-tools --enable-binary-packages
--enable-octave=default --enable-qt5 --enable-64 --enable-windows-64

For creating a linux native, I use:

../configure --enable-devel-tools --enable-binary-packages
--enable-octave=default --disable-system-opengl --enable-native-build
--enable-lib64-directory --enable-pic-flag --disable-system-x11-libs
--disable-system-fontconfig --disable-system-gcc --enable-qt5 gnu-linux
